I heard about this place long before I eventually tried it. Since the first time, my wife and I have visited essentially every time we find ourselves downtown after a meal. Perfect dessert. I'm not the biggest cheesecake fan, but my wife raves about the different flavors available. They also serve local ice cream, cookies, cupcakes, muffins and several varieties... More

Any time we eat downtown, we always stop by Alex's for dessert. The selection is fantastic, and the quality unparalleled.

I stopped into Cheesecakes by Alex before heading to a concert on New Year's Eve. There was a bit of a line, but it moved very quickly. With 10 or so people ordering ahead of me, I still only had to wait 5-6 minutes to get my cheesecake. I was pleasantly surprised to find that most of their cheesecakes were... More

My wife and I wanted to give the nursing staff something to show our appreciation of the great care they gave her while she was in the hospital for kidney stone surgery. What better than a couple of "Build your own" cheesecake from Cheesecakes by Alex. We met Alex some years ago and had bought goodies from him before so... More

On a first glance the cafe/bakery with its industrial charm does not look very appealing. However, the assortment, the freshness (even on a Saturday night) and the taste of the cheesecakes are amazing. It makes more than up for the lack of ambience.

So November has been the month of cheesecakes for me so far and Cheesecakes by Alex has been my knight in shining armor through it all. Let me say this: I've had cheesecakes made by CbyA before but this is the first time I've actually had cheesecakes directly from CbyA and not from a local restaurant. A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE!... More

Ordered cupcakes on Saturday for a late morning Sunday pick up to take home & serve on Monday. They wrapped up the boxes so well that over 24 hours later they still tasted fresh. If you find yourself in Downtown GSO you must try Cheesecakes by Alex as they have great pastries, cakes. & of course cheesecake!

This place is not worth your time. The cheesecake is just ok, taste like frozen kind that you can buy in your grocery store. It's wayyy overpriced!! The seating area is small....but it's downtown gbo and if your out and about, and have nothing else to do but just got to have a slice of cheesecake.....then it's ok for that.... More

The cheesecake is great and offered in a number of flavors, as close to New York as you will find. Also I would recommend the breakfast crumb cake.
